I was last to this restaurant a year and a half ago and was very pleased. Something bad has happened. The place was nearly empty, the wait staff was not well presented, the menus contained only 1/2 the former contents, but the menu was not reprinted. The owners drew an "X" through the unavailable items. Those items that we did... More

Atmosphere was pretty good. That's way u was kind of disappointed in the food. Kids food was out at least 10 minutes before the rest of the table. He was almost done eating before we got our food. Next, no seasoning of the food. A little salt and pepper go a long way. If you are going to charge me... More

Don't know what happened to this place. We were there 2 years ago and it was very good but we recently stopped for lunch and found it to be very pricey....over $10 for a simple sandwich or burger that was only served with chips. Healthy menu options are very limited - probably won't be back - too many good restaurants... More

handled the business crowd when we were there as easily as they did our family. The meatloaf was great, the sweet potato fries were a nice treat, and the chicken all seemed to be prepared vy hand, not frozen. The service was friendly and prompt. And, the price were very fair. Plus, free parking across the street in a city... More

The website for this place said "ultimate waterfront dining" and even had picture of rides at Cedar Point across the water. It is located a block from the water which you can see a strip of from the patio on the side of the building. We walked in and there were maybe 5-10 tables inside and out, so not terribly... More

The food here is amazing! If you eat on the deck, you get a view of the water! The waitresses are very nice as well. Must visit!

We visited Water Street on Sunday 7/13 for my mother’s birthday with a party of 6. It wasn’t too busy since we met there at 330pm, but it wasn’t dead either. Service = not the worst but pretty close. Our waitress’ attitude was off-putting and sort of rude. She was always in a hurry and seemed not to actually “take... More
